Last year, Robert Smith had fans excited when he announced the band were working on a new album. The record was reportedly to be titled 4:14 Scream, the companion to 2008’s 4:13 Dream (the new record was supposed to include leftover material from the 2008 release). Since then, there has been no updates on the record.
